There’s something about Yahoo! Mail (YM) that’s been bugging me for a long time. When you sign out of YM, you encounter the following message: ‘You have successfully closed your mailbox‘.
You are also asked to click a hyperlink called Sign out completely to ‘exit all Yahoo! services‘.
Why? It’s not because I’ve signed in to different services on Yahoo, I sign in using the Yahoo! Mail page. There’s no need to ask me to sign out of services that I have not signed in to explicitly. And, it’s not convenient for me to access other Yahoo services because I have to enter my password again anyway.
Two clicks are irritating when most web-based mail services (or other services) require a single click to logout. Plus, when you logout you’re taken to the Yahoo! page, even if you logged in from the YM login page. You need to click another hyperlink to login.
Yahoo! offers loads of services and they have a re-designed page. I get that. I also like using Yahoo! Mail for the most part.
I just wish they’d make signing out simpler.
